Identify & Prevent Plant Disease

The Disease Triangle is made up of three components: host, pathogen and environment. All three must be present in order for a disease to occur and prevent your crop from reaching its full potential.

Disease triangle

Preventitive measures that alter the Diesease Triangle

HOST

Use fungicide, crop rotation, trash management

PATHOGEN

Select different varieties that are less susceptible to disease

ENVIRONMENT

Least amount of control

The diagram below is common for many of the key diseases.

Let’s use the Sclerotinia Life Cycle in canola to illustrate the stages of crop disease.

Sclerotinia Life Cycle

All three images show a level of Sclerotinia in cereals disease that should be a concern.

MILD INFECTION

MODERATE INFECTION

EXTREME INFECTION

The lesions you are seeing are not the whole story. More tissue has been infected, but is not showing symptoms yet. Leaf diseases typically begin on the lower or middle leaves and move up the plant towards the emerging flag leaf. Even a few lesions on the middle leaves (3rd or 4th leaf) can put the health of the flag leaf and penultimate leaf at risk — and ultimately, the yield of your cereal crop is at stake.

While you’re scouting for the presence of disease, make a note of other non-disease issues in the field. It goes without saying that crops with strong nutritional programs build healthier plants that can defend against disease. It is also a fact that a plant’s nutritional needs change throughout the season. It means fungicide timing is a great opportunity to add foliar applied nutrients like UFA’s Multiply if you see plants are struggling, or you simply want to boost yield potential.

Multiply is part of an in-crop management plan that boosts nutrient uptake though the leaf and metabolic activity in the plant. A properly-timed application will maximize efficiency to improve the flowering, pollination and seed set of your canola, leading to optimal plant health and yield.

Applying the Product

An informed decision regarding fungicide use is the first step in protecting your crop yield. There are five factors to consider when spraying: application timing; water volume; double nozzles; travel speed; boom height and spray quality.

Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) Management

Early Head

Head is completely exposed and just emerged from the flag leaf.

+6.7 bu./ac. benefit

Day 0 - Early Head

Optimal

Head extended up from the flag leaf with the first flowers visible.

+8.7 bu./ac. benefit

Day +2 - Optimal

Optimum Time to Spray

Late Head

Head fully flowered and flowers falling off.

+7.2 bu./ac. benefit

Day +4 - Late Head

Although there is generally a seven-day window to apply a fungicide for maximum yield and disease protection, data indicates that growers who apply their fungicides early (between Day +1 and Day +2) receive their greatest return on investment.

Head emergence and flowering will vary, depending on the weather conditions, soil conditions, variety and planting date. When in doubt, hedge on the early side.
